On Sunday, Morgan Weatherspoon’s father reported a commercial dolly and 32-inch flat-screen TV stolen from his daughter’s Buchanan Street home.

The man was unsure what else might be missing but noticed the back door had been pried open, indicating the thief’s point of entry, according to a Sandusky police report.

Weatherspoon is jailed on complicity to attempted murder and complicity to attempted aggravated robbery charges, after she allegedly allowed three men to use her home as a staging ground for a September robbery attempt. That incident left an Eddy Henry Way man hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the head.

On Monday, Carrie Schoewe, 39, jailed since Oct. 31 for theft, misuse of credit cards and receiving stolen property, reported a theft from her Perry Street home. Schoewe alleged her boyfriend pawned her LG television, Wii and Xbox 360 at a local exchange shop, another report said.

Schoewe sent family members to check on her items at the store, and they soon learned the man indeed sold them there, the report said.

Officers told her to follow up with the prosecutor’s office upon her release, as it appears to be a civil matter.


Good 2 B Me

Are we supposed to feel sorry for these people?


AWWWW Poor criminals got they will be complaining because their food isn't warm enough, or their cot isnt comfortable enough...sometimes Karma is a B***H


So, stuff's missing, is it? I have to wonder, in the case of the woman in jail on credit card fraud, how much of what was stolen was purchased with stolen money in the first place? What goes around comes around, I always say!


Hmm. Rather sucks to have your stuff stolen, doesn't it? Not that I would actually expect these two to make that connection.




Hopefully, many more scenarios such as this to come. Quite frankly, I'm delighted at how the tables were turned for once on these two-bit thugs. Keep the thieving amongst yourselves, steal each others stolen property. Leave the innocent working peoples things alone.
